This refined, amenity-packed boutique hotel is housed in a former mansion, just around the corner from the Dar el Bacha Palace.

Tree-lined terraces and cosy nooks provide idyllic spots for dining in-house. In keeping with the colonial style, oversized birdcages and peacock chairs add decorative touches, alongside the photography collection and birds of paradise flowers.

An Alice Through the Looking Glass type-door leads to an exquisite spa, housed in its own multi-level riad, complete with steamy hammam.

The location – the Dar el Bacha neighbourhood has been dubbed the Mayfair of Marrakech – couldn’t be better; steps away from the Secret Garden, interior design and fashion boutiques, and some of the medina’s best restaurants.

Surrounding area

With 24-hour security at the palace, this neighbourhood feels safe day and night, with the entrance to the riad just steps away from the palace where cars can pick up and drop off guests. Outside, the pace is as frenetic as anywhere else in the medina, but it does quieten down considerably in the evening.

Riad Tarabel is steps away from the Dar el Bacha palace (where Bacha Coffee is located), antique shops and contemporary designers.
